As you know, there are millions of Americans who have or are currently out right now to cast their votes for their respective candidate of choice.
Former ESPN host Jemele Hill, who is now free to say whatever without backlash, gave her two cents on all things politics. She took aim at Donald Trump by stating he left a “stain” behind.
“The stain that (Donald Trump) has left on our democracy is permanent,” she said during time on the Dan Le Batard Show. “A lot of people are voting to hurt others, they’re not even voting to impact their own lives, they are voting so someone else doesn’t get something. That says so much to me about where we are.”
“People will vote for lower gas prices over democracy – it’s just what it is,” she explained. “They will vote for things that they can touch, even if it brings in wider, more horrible things that negate the thing that they think that they’re voting for.”
The former co-anchor of ESPN’s SportsCenter faced criticism in 2017 for calling the president a white supremacist. It caused a major uproar that got Trump’s attention as he demanded ESPN issue an apology.
White House press secretary Sarah Huckabee Sanders told reporters on Wednesday Hill’s comments were a “fireable offense.”
She would eventually part ways with the company but received a nice payment to do so.
